Along the Curves 

I paid little attention to the super highways 
That crisscrossed the land in which I lived. 
I travelled along the curves. 

The sights were plentiful and 

I heard sounds easily muffled 

By the roar of speeding traffic. 

I heard the water's cooling whisper, 

The wind's gentle caress of the treetops, 

The sensuous melody of creatures harmonizing 

with nature. 

Light and shadow highlighted more dramatically 

the beauty of the land. 

I saw the faces of those small creatures who 

scampered and 

played in the gentle shade of swaying, tender 


I tasted luscious delights that couldn't grow 

In the harsh sunlight of plowed and patterned 


At night I slept in the gentle embrace of delicate 


Awakening fresh and renewed. 

Along the curves I saw the beauty of life, 

experienced the joy of living 

And met all of you, laughing, sharing, reaching 

out to love me. 

Thank you!

Robert Joseph Kramer 
April 28, 1947— October 4, 1990 

The Yearbook Staff dedicates the 1991 Mir- 
ror to Robert J. Kramer, teacher and friend. We 
are grateful for the wonderful years of a won- 
derful life he shared with us. 

— Robert J. Kramer 


We wish to bid a fond farewell to our 
beloved Joseph H. Dimon IV, 
who . . . wait, I can't do this. Let's face 
it — the man's name is Scoot. 

When Scoot Dimon first graced our hal- 
lowed halls in the fall of 1987, he was 
greeted with a bit of curiosity and confu- 
sion. For never before had North Shore 
witnessed a man who was such an avid 
fan of all sports, a man who would sit in 
on any class, even if it involved a lan- 
guage he didn't speak, a man who referred 
to anyone and everyone as a "gang." The 
entire North Shore community will dearly 
miss Mr. Dimon, his wife, Maggie, (who 
was a North Shore teacher for two years) 
and their two sons, Philip and Ricky, 
when they return South at the end of this 
school year. 

It is easy to see the positive effect that 
the Dimon family has had on the North 
Shore community. Mr. Dimon is well- 
known for his habit of racing down the 
halls, talking with students (he knows all 
our names, too!). He enjoys listening to 
and participating in our classes, and he's 
always willing to fill in for an absent

Homecoming 1 990 was a great success, with a combina- 
tion of old traditions and new ideas resulting in everyone 
having a great time. The festivities were kicked off on 
Friday October 12, with a Raider bonfire, which will 
hopefully become an annual event. Senior football 
players Jake DiFrancesca and Zack Oelerich acted as 
Masters of Ceremonies, performing several difficult 
tasks, which included leading a stirring rendition of 
"O'er the Fields of Waving Purple" (these guys really 
gave Roseanne Barr a run for her money!). The evening 
culminated as football coach Jim Deuble lit the bonfire 
and we heard cheers from all of North Shore's fall sports 
teams — two thumbs up to Upper School Soccer for, uh 
. . . creativity! Last, but certainly not least, we witnessed 
the ceremonial "Burning of the Moose," as a Bullwinkle 

replica, acting as a symbol for the Mooseheart footba| 
team, was thrown into the flames. 

As it turned out, all that North Shore spirit paid 
the next day, when our Raiders beat Moosenheart for til 
first time in many years — with an incredible score of 4a 
20, no less! Everyone in the school community was alffl 
very glad to see so many people turn out to "Fight, fight 
fight/For the Purple and the White," especially those stl 
dents involved in the annual Homecoming Paradl 
Many of these loyal supporters also cheered on VarsiJ 
Volleyball, though they did lose to a very tough group a 
Alumni players; and Varsity Field Hockey, as they rl 
deemed themselves after last year's loss with a 3| 
triumph over the Alumni team.

Our Fall Show 

The 1990 Fall Show was Thornton Wilder's Pulit- 
zer — Prize winning play Our Town. With one of the 
largest casts ever used in a Fall Show, many people 
didn't believe our ever-lovin Ms. Molly Burns could 
put on such a demanding production. But we pulled 
it off, and even more so, we pulled it off well! 

That's not to say we pulled it off without a hitch, 
though. With many cast changes coming early in re- 
hearsals many cast members were becoming slightly 
schizophrenic trying to sort out all of the roles they 
had to play. It also didn't help that the cast was con- 
tinually banished to the top floor of the Upper 
School because "the crew had work to do!" Plus, lis- 
tening to Benjie as he constantly pondered the 
whereabouts of his birthday girl got many people 
quite annoyed after a while. And Danny doing his 
Elvis-impersonator Stage Manager didn't help things 
along. But despite all these small (but annoying) dis- 
trubances, the Our Town cast and crew managed to 
pull together for two great performances, particularly 
after we actually learned our lines. 


Ah, Halloween! A chance for kids of all ages to have fun 
scaring the wits out of everybody else and eating themselves 
sick with candy. This year, in addition to all of our wonder- 
ful pirates, royalty figures, super heroes, sports figures, and 
monsters, North Shore saw a few, shall we say, more unusal 
costumes. The most prominent: Tripp Frank's Puff the Mag- 
ic Dragon Wanna-be costume; Rob McClung the starfish; 
Jack Meadow costumed as the one of the cutest little Dick 
Tracy's you'll ever see; and Ed Coleman and Joe Shenton 
dressed (undressed?) as two — ahem! — Cans of Spam, with 
Jake DiFrancesca as their, um, Grocer (for lack of better 
phrasing — we don't want to offend our school family) Yeah. 
Anyway, 'twas a Happy Halloween for all — let's hope next 
year is as much fun! 

Work Day 

Work Day, the annual North Shore event in which we miss school 
to rake leaves, was an even bigger success than in years past. The 
Upper School's off-campus raking gave the day a great start. Though 
some groups didn't have much work to do, others swore that the 
lawns they raked hadn't seen a landscaper since the Eisenhower Ad- 

Mrs. Foster's new plan of raking on-campus without our buddies 
worked fairly well, though some couldn't resist throwing a Lower 
Schooler into a pile of leaves! After our work was done, the sound of 
First Instinct, the Upper School band, filled our ears, as we sat down, 
tired from the day's events, for a snack with our buddies, consisting 
of the traditional doughnuts and apple juice. Our spirits were soon 
lifted once again at the thought of . . . Duck-Duck-Goose! Yes, North 
Shore's tradition still lives on — after all, it's tremendously fun! 

We wrapped up the day with the Upper and Middle Schools view- 
ing Mr. Almquist's as of yet unedited Work Day Film. The entire 
experience can probably be summed up best by Lisa Rosen: "Fun." 


Before we all went off for our Thanksgiving Break this year, 
we had a chance to see our own school friends in a different 
light. Our Thanksgiving Morning Ex. allowed the Lower School 
and International Students to illustrate cultural differences and 
similarities through songs, stories, and samplings of different 
languages. We learned about the holidays that are celebrated in 
various countries through a musical presentation. It was a great 
way to learn more about our North Shore family before we all 
headed off to be with our own; hopefully, it will continue in the 
coming years. 

Interim Week 

Interim Week once again proved to be 
an interesting and stimulating experience 
for all Upper School students. During this 
one week in the beginning of November, 
students pursued their areas of interest, 
jointly or independently. People spent 
much of their time in the courtroom, in 
front of video editing machines, under 
cars, or in airplanes. Interim night, which 
featured an inspiring presentation by the 
Alcohol Awareness group, gave each In- 
terim Group a chance to share their exper- 
iences with each other. Interim Week '90 
was, as always, a great success and will 
continue to be in the future.

Madrigal 1990 was a success as usual. The turnout 
was high for the third year in a row, and all guests 
seemed to be highly entertained. Danny Beider 
and Bela Agrawal presided as Lord and Lady of 
the Manor, and the rest of the chorus acted as 
singers of the court. The music varied from tradi- 
tional Christmas carols to a barbershop arrange- 
ment of "Jingle Bells," to a madrigal duet sung by 
Ale Levi and Michaela Murphy. Other entertain- 
ment included Danny Cogan as the Court Jester. 
Who could forget the job Stuart Lax and Rob 
McClung did as the beef-eaters in their lovely col- 
lars? All in all, 1990's Madrigal Feaste was an ex- 
perience to be remembered! 

The Lower School, from Junior Kindergarten to Fifth Grade, put on a wonderful holiday 
program which obviously reflected a lot of preparation time on the parts of teachers and 
students. This annual show included colorful songs, skits, and dances in the traditional holi- 
day spirit, with a story of "Snow Magic." Another demonstration of holiday spirit was in the 
annual Winter Concert, when students of al! ages, along with the faculty, presented a variety 
of musical extravagazas. The Lower School performed two pieces, the Middle School 
played many instrumental numbers, and choruses from all three levels sang, closing with a 
stirring rendition of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." These events helped to make the 
holiday season even more memorable. 


Santa Claus Dance, 1990 

Once again, in keeping with North Shore tradition, 
the entire school, students and faculty alike, partici- 
pated in the Santa Claus Dance. Holiday spirit virtu- 
ally ran amok as Santa Claus bounded around the 
gym and joined the Seniors and Kindergarteners in 
hokey-pokeying. Other students entertained our 
NSCDS family by dancing to such mega-hits as "The 
Chipmunk Christmas Song — " what talent! All in all, 
the Santa Claus dance was a very enjoyable and 
worthwhile experience in our holiday celebrations. 


Morning Ex. ... Well, to say the 
least, Morning Ex. has been relatively 
diverse this year. From the annual Hal- 
loween, Thanksgiving, and Martin Lu- 
ther King Day programs, to Molly 
Burns' description of her camping trip 
to watching Josh hug Mr. Lanphear, the 
student body was entertained at least 
two times each week throughout the 
year. Anyway, Morning Exercises this 
year were, as always, simply treasures.

We Are Yearbook 


* * 

■Ah , the yearbook staff. How to describe these stunning folks? 
•bviously, we are great artisans — hence, the fabulous piece of liter- 
ly work you now hold. But what about the human side? Let us did 
fceper into the lives of these incredible students who have devoted 
fturs and hours, days and nights of their precious time, simply so 

)u could own this lovely memento of your school days. For one 

ing, they have a penchant for taping paper to walls, be it paper 

ith strange advertisements, reminders to themselves about what- 

rer they could possibly want or need to be reminded of, or deep 
,-iilosophical sayings (well, sort of). But let's meet each one sepa- 
Ltely, shall we? 

I First, we have our fearless leader, our head honcho, our main 
"an, our studly hunk himself, the Editor-in-Chief Robert A. 

xClung. On any given day, one could wander into the publica- 

Dns office and find Rob, head in hands, stressing out over any- 

ing and everything that comes to mind. All kidding aside, though, 

ob really has been the driving force behind the 1991 Mirror. Being 

e only person ready to talk to Ray Gilgenbach, our "Yearbook 

)ecialist," he pulled things together nicely. 

Granted, Rob had a great deal of help from Assistant to the Edi- 

>r, Stuart Lax. Known to most as Stu, this guy with the hair (hair, 

)ay we add, that bounces back in a really neat way when you pull 
) was a tad bit more . . . mellow, shall we say, than Rob. With Stu, 
I >u never knew if he would be playing Led Zeppelin air guitar, or 

iietly suggesting that the rest of us calm down. He also had the 

agical ability to make Sarah Crawford materialize, by singing 

hat has been termed "The Sarah Crawford Song." 

Speaking of Sarah Crawford, it has been concluded that, even though she does not have the privilege of having been mentioned 

1 the Title Page, she is deserving of an honorable mention. You see, Sarah, despite being loud and incessantly cheerful, has really 

oved quite handy to have around at times. It would appear that whenever we begin to scream about something being wrong 

ith our trusty Macintosh, she was able to fix it. Therefore, Sarah has become our local Computer Expert, and we would like to 

ke this moment of silence to acknowledge her as an honorary editor. Thank you. 

', Let's move on to Barry Zgonena, our Photography Editor. We really don't know what to say about Barry — namely because we 
r 4rely saw Barry. After repeated pleas for him to get pictures developed, they would mystically appear in the office. It could be 
lat with all the time he spent there as Editor of the DSJ, the sight of the place really made him want to puke. Of course, we don't 
kiow. We never knew much about what was up with Barry. However, most of the lovely photographs in this yearbook are due to 
I m. Say thanks if you see him. 

But referring to our other Mirror/DSJ Editor, it could safely be said that Copy Editor Michaela Murphy spent most of her 
inior year in the publications office. It became apparent that she had been in there too long when she began to wander around 
irieking about her lists (which she loved making — rather odd for an otherwise entirely disorganized person, but that's okay). She 
as more content doing that, though, then dealing with other people, usually begging them to turn in the copy she had asked them 
i do. But seriously, it wasn't that hard to keep Mike happy — we just had to be sure that there was always a large supply of Diet 
take in the office, along with some other form of snack food, preferably Cape Cod popcorn or Chips Ahoy. 

Gretchen Theders, Layout Editor Extraordinaire, was one of the easiest members of this year's staff to get along with, as long as 
3u didn't call her "Greenpeace" or insult Wolfgang . . . her car. Okay, so Gretchen's a little weird, but aren't we all? Despite her 
ibit of screaming when she got frustrated and her difficulty in making decisions ("Combos or popcorn? Combos or popcorn?"), 
[e really loved having her around. 

i As did her best friend, Business Manager Kate Kehoe. Kate was not only an incredible business woman, she shared a special 
fc>nd with Rob: they both really hate sloppiness. Eventually, of course, she pretty much gave up on cleaning the office, and would 
ist sort of grumble from time to time. She would also get quite depressed upon having to deal with store managers who she 
anted to give her money. Aside from that, though, Kate was generally pretty cheerful — sometimes really cheerful. There were 
imes when we though her laughing fits would last for hours (yet another sign of a Yearbook Editor who had gone too long 
ithout seeing the light of day). 

Well, that's your Mirror Editorial staff for 1991-1992. Of course, there are a few other people worthy of mention. Many thanks 
> the following, who devoted much time and effort to making this publication a success: Bela Agrawal, Nick Battaglia, Danny 
eider, Laura Collins, Tripp Frank, Denis Healy, Ashley Hemphill, Aishng McDonagh, Liza Michaels, Josh Quinn, Joe Shenton, 
>an Berenberg, Maciej Ceglowski, Robyn Goldman, Joanna Tepper, Angeline Brown, Benjie de la Fuente, Stefanie Freeman, 
elli Stebel, and Justin Wood . . . Thanks, guys! 

Diller Street Journal 

The DSJ got off to a rather slow start this year. With a shortage of staff writers (which first consisted purely of the 
five editors), we had minor problems meeting our deadlines. However, when the stupendous Journalism class 
emerged and learned the art of word processing on our beloved Macintosh, we were just rolling in articles, and 
produced some great issues. Fortunately, two members of the editorial staff and all of the staff writers will be return- 
ing next year, so The Diller Street Journal should be better than ever.

This year's student 
council efforts were headed 
by President Kris Gardi- 
ner. This group of twenty 
continued the recycling 
campaign of previous 
years, and we all worked 
hard (and succeeded, we 
think!) at raising school 
spirit. Perhaps a new tradi- 
tion has begun with the 
Homecoming Bonfire. 
Also, we were proud to 
note the overwhelming at- 
tendance of the Turnabout 
Dance. It was an overall 
successful year, and we 
hope future students keep 
it up!

Chorus & Barbershop 


Chorus 1990-91 was, as always, an experience to be cher- 
ished. We immediately got to work on preparing the third an- 
nual Madrigal Feaste, and as soon as this production was over, 
these talented young performers moved into preparation for the 
Winter Concert, which was quite a success. They had a good 
seven minutes or so to rest, and then they were bombarded 
with news of their (in the words of Mr. Wallenberg) "big thing:" 
The Pirates of Penzance! So these poor students worked for 
months to give North Shore a masterful production of this Gil- 
bert and Sullivan operetta, at the same time working on a 
Spring Concert. In spite of the crowded schedule, though, we 
had a blast. 

Another group worthy of mention is the Clean-Cut singers, 
the Barbershop Chorus, a group that was changed into a year- 
round chorus performing at all the school concerts last year. 
This year, the same group of nine students continued to work 
on their repertoire of songs in four-part harmony, including 
such songs as "Coney Island Baby" and the National Anthe- 
m — and let's not forget that old favorite, "My Wild Irish 
Rose." Hopefully, the Barbershop chorus will live on as a new 
North Shore tradition. 


The Girls' Athletic Project Association proved itself to be a worthy cause 
once again in 1990-91. Making themselves known at Homecoming, GAPA 
started the year off well by selling food and North Shore apparel, and continued 
uphill from there. These hard-working female athletes spent the year raising 
funds for the furthering of their athletic endeavors, and had a great time doing

"Deuble Ushers in New Raider Era" 

The football team enjoyed a very successful season in 
1990. We played as an independent, which meant we played 
teams from all over the area and some from out of state. 

The 1990 Raiders, led by co-captains Tripp Frank and 
Nick Battaglia, compiled a regular season record of 9-0, 
which was the only undefeated season since 1963. 

The great season gave the team a chance to participate in 
the state playoffs for the first time since 1985. In the playoffs, 
the Raiders beat South Beloit High School in the opening 
round, then were beaten by Durand High School in the sec- 
ond round. The final record was 10-1. 

The team was made up of 23 players, 9 of whom were sen- 
iors who played key roles on the team. The seniors were: 
Tripp Frank, Nick Battaglia, Zach Oelerich, Denis Healy, 
Josh Quinn, Jake DiFrancesca, Andrew James, Ed Coleman, 
and Rob McClung — thank you, guys, for being good leaders 
on the field. The Raiders have a good group of returning 
players, and we'll look for more success in the 1991 season. 

Thanks to all the students, parents, faculty, and alumni 
who gave us so much support. 1 990 was a great year that we 
will all remember for years to come.

Field Hockey began one week 

in August on a very hot day, 

Our numbers were high 

Our enthusiasm, the same way. 

We had freshmen abounding 

And a strong senior class, 

The sophomores and juniors, though few 

Would not be surpassed. 

A slow start we had 

In Warrior and Scout territory, 

But we began to improve 

And that told our year's story. 

With each game thereafter 

Whether victory or defeat, 

Our strong "will to win" 

Could never be beat. 

The coaching ranks increased 

Wendy and Julie helped the attacks, 

And Karen returned 

To work with the backs. 

We made changes in systems 

Forwards with speed made sense. 

With Ling directing the backs, 

Gigi was great on defense. 

Angeline with her hard drive 

Yoo-Kyung tackling one-handed, 

Liza was always ready 

A bright smile with abandon. 

Our sweepers were effective 

Carrie learned from them much, 

Michaela anticipating the passes 

And Kris tackling in the clutch! 

And Robyn in the goal 

A tough position she learned, 

Some key saves she made 

And great respect she earned. 

We used Becky on defense 

But as a forward she had speed, 

With Jen and Elizabeth 

All fleet-footed indeed. 

Lisa, Carin, and Marnie 

All handled the midfield 

Their improvement was great 

Always striving, they did not yield. 

The forward line blended, 

Gretchen's passing was great. 

Ashley was double-teamed 

But often too late. 

Beth and Katie as forwards 

Would rov er the left side, 

Their teamwork improved 

With deflections their pride. 

And so we got better 

Each day was pretty cool, 

When we needed a change 

We aquacized in the pool! 

We beat the Alumni 

on Homecoming Day! 

The Buddha returned 

Winning 3-1 our way. 

We trekked out to Elgin 

Four times this past season, 

Looking for Pizza Hut 

Caused frustration with reason! 

Team unity got stronger, 

Pasta dinners, sleeps overnight, 

The seniors started at Elgin 

The Tournament went right. 

Our Sectional game 

Would decide who would go, 

The Hilltoppers once again 

Would be our foe. 

The score was 2-2 

After a hard-fought game, 

And when 10 minutes ended, 

The score was the same. 

We exchanged strokes then 

To see who made the most, 

And in the dark we won 

When Elgin's last shot hit the post! 

To the Final Four we went 

North Shore's first time in the race, 

A loss to Lake Forest 

But we beat Antioch for 3rd Place!

Never before in North Shore football 
history has a team had the success that 
this year's team had. Definitely a season 
to remember, the "Rompin' Raiders" fin- 
ished 10-1, the most victories by a North 
Shore football team ever. Under the lea- 
dership of first-year head coach Jim Deu- 
ble, the Raiders outscored their opponents 
358-100 while never allowing more than 
twenty points to be scored against them in 
a single game. Another impressive notch 
in the Raiders' belt is that they racked up 
three shut-outs towards the beginning of 
the season. Going to the playoffs for the 
first time in five years, they defeated the 
first team but was stopped by Durand in 
the second game, 14-7 .. . not as impres- 
sive a victory as the Durand fans had ex- 
pected (they got slaughtered the next 
week, anyway). Led by seniors, a good ex- 
ample has been set for the young team 
who will attempt to carry on the Raider

History in 
the Making 

The Upper School 1990 Field Hockey 
team was an all-around triumph. Though 
the team was once again made up predo- 
minantly of underclassmen, some of 
whom had never even played the sport be- 
fore, they quickly adjusted, helping to in- 
still self-confidence into the players. So, 
after some grueling pre-season practice, we 
all trooped off to our very first game of 
the season — against Lake Forest High 
School — and lost 8-0. However, we kept 
our heads high, and soon beat Woodlands 
6-0, and it was all uphill from there. We 
made ourselves (and our wins!) well- 
known through an incredible series of 
Morning Ex. announcements, and soon 
had the entire school backing us in our ef- 

In the end, our Season Record was 12- 
12, and our Conference Record was 6-4, 
but that isn't the most important point 
here. As we went through the season, we 
became closer and worked together better, 
in projects like searching for Pizza Hut, 
going against Elgin in strokes in the dark, 
being so obnoxious in guarding them that 
we forced their best player out of the 
game, cooking pasta dinners and watching 
The Little Mermaid and Pretty Woman. 
And let's not forget our biggest accom- 
plishments of the season: winning the ISL 
tournament, making it to the State's final 
four (for the first time in North Shore his- 
tory!), and winning third place in state! 

As always, we would like to extend our 
thanks to Joe Shenton for his loyal fan 
support, and to our assistant coaches 
Wendy Read, Julie Blumenthal, and Ka- 
ren Riggs. We save most of our apprecia- 
tion, though, for Edee Madsen — without 
her, not only would the season not have 
been so victorious, it wouldn't have been 
nearly as much fun! Thanks, Coach!

Ah, soccer! North Shore made a historic 
leap this year by transforming an old sport 
into a mix of volleyball, track and wres- 
tling. In fact, many players seemed to feel 
that kicking the ball with their feet was 
too banal for their tastes and decided on 
more exotic means of moving it along. In 
fact, until coach Lunding explained some 
of the basic rules of soccer, balls were be- 
ing punched, dribbled and punted with the 
face. All in all, soccer did make progress. 
The team went from losing hideously to 
losing badly. The team tied a real team 
and beat an unreal team, Cathedral, who 
seemed to have their minds on tangerine 
dreams and marmalade skies instead of on 
soccer. Hopefully, next year North Shore 
will have an influx of foreign exchange 
students who will appreciate the team 
motto: "It's not winning or losing that 
counts, but knowing which game you're 
playing that matters." 

1. Ahhhhh! 2. The "Kaz-Man" does the cha-cha. 3. 
Seth tries to imitate the "Kaz-Man," but to no 
avail — he just can't dance like Kaz! 4. The game was 
delayed a bit when all of the Raiders' hands unex- 
pectedly fell off. 5. Kaz has gotten so into the game, 
a soccer ball has sprouted from his foot!

Less is 

Despite the record of the Varsity Tennis 
team, we managed to net a few individual 
victories. By the end of the season, our 
team showed improvement by going from 
disastrous losses to merely heart-breaking 

In a short period of time, through much 
hard work and dedication, we developed a 
team with a lot of enthusiasm. The Junior 
Varsity proved this by ending with a win- 
ning season and rising to the occasion 
when needed to play with the Varsity 
team. Even though the Varsity record was 
0-7, our determination and high spirits 
carried us to a third place standing in the 
ISL tournament. Also, at our first appear- 
ance in State competition, Joanna Tepper 
won her first round at first singles against 
a player from Niles North, ending the sea- 
son on a high note. 

We would like to commend Coach Ran- 
dolph in his success in coaching our team 
for the first time, and we wish him and 
the 1991 tennis team the best of luck.

Volleyball had a great season this year. 
Even though we had a shaky start, we had 
high morale, and managed to end with an 
overall victorious season. Not only did we 
win more than half our games, we also 
managed to pull together as a team. We 
won more steadily as the season pro- 
gressed, and we improved a great deal by 
the end of the season. With the help of 
Cathy Burbules (a.k.a. Ms. B!) and Cindy 
Hooper, our coaches, and co-captains Es- 
telle Campos and Tory Richardson, we 
had an incredible season and a lot of fun! 

1. Stelly really gets into her dives! 2. The other team 
must have been really ugly for Alyssa to look so hor-

game. 4. Chelby is looking quite pleased with herself.

of Tom Cruise on the gymnasium ceiling.

Upper School 


Basketball: A 



The Varsity Boys' Basketball Team 
ushered in the new decade with a record 
vastly improved from last year's. Fortified 
by a core of six returning seniors, the 
Raiders showed everybody that they were 
capable of putting points on the board and 
even winning games. New members of the 
team greatly enhanced it, proving them- 
selves to be valuable additions. 

Junior Varsity has also fared well this 
year in the ISL. Led by a group of talented 
sophomores, the JV Raiders won their 
share of games this season, some by incre- 
dible margins. Sharp shooting and inner 
strength made them a team to be reckoned 
with, and they will surely carry their suc- 
cess with them to the varsity level. 

lior Varsity: Loren Berry, Mike Hanover, James Moses, Sean Pressman, Scott 
aes, John Frank, Gre g Jacobs, Seth Feldman, Mack Afshar. 

1. Careful, Greg — you could do some serious dam- 
age! 2. Someone explain to me how he managed to 
make that shot from that position. 3. Did U-High's 
jumper just . . . forget, or something? 4. The guys not 
playing certainly look enthralled, don't they? 


US Girls' 

The Upper School Girls' Basketball Team 
of 1991 fared very well this season. Though 
we got something of a reputation as being 
slightly violent (we didn't start any of those 
fights, we swear!), we had an incredible time 
anyway. With our coach, Cindy Hooper, and 
assistant coach Amy Peters, we worked all 
winter to emerge as an incredible team. 
However, that's not to say that we did noth- 
ing but work hard all season — we spent quite 
a bit of time having fun and really became 
close; it can safely be said that we were all 
great friends by our last game. Even though 
we had a heart-breaking, very close loss in 
that last game, which was part of the Region- 
al Tournament, we were able to say that we 
tried our best. Though the Varsity Lady 
Raiders had a split record (give or take a few 
games), we were all proud of how well the 
Junior Varsity players did — they instilled 
fear into the hearts of basketball players, es- 
pecially within the Independent School 
League. All in all, we feel that we have had a 
successful season, having emerged healthier, 
happier, and a little wiser to the game of

"A Learning 


We came into the season as a generally 
inexperienced group of players. However, 
our coach Eric Lunding recognized whaf 
we had and capitalized on it. He taught usr 
the basics we needed to form a good foot- 
ball team. He was understanding through- 
out the season, and the improvement that 
we showed by the end of the year was in- 
credible. We always stayed positive — we 
never hung our heads after a loss, but used 
it as a learning experience. We would like 
to thank Eric for all of the encouragement 
and everything he taught us this year. 
Many thanks also go to Matt Smey for his 
teams bowl advice.

Season For 

It was a novel year for the Middle 
School Soccer Team — we won more than 
half our games! We are confident that next 
year's team will still be impressive, and we 
are counting on the 8th grade team to be 
as good or better than this year's 8th grade 
power team. Our captains, Dan Wirtz, Ja- 
red Michaels, and Andy Richards, helped 
us along in their leadership, which made 
everyone else contribute a lot to our win- 
ning season. Everybody improved a lot by 
the end of the season, thanks to our great 
first-year soccer coach Jay Bach.

Hockey at 


We've had yet another fun field hockey 
season for the Middle School. For the first 
year, 6th and 7th graders could take part 
playing on the Varsity team. The rainy 
weather didn't help our season, as two 
games were cancelled. However, our spir- 
its were never swamped! Well, at least we 
could watch the Middle School soccer 
team play in the rain, right? We rushed 
through the season (sticks brushing the 
ground) with help from our senior referee, 
Aisling McDonagh, and coaches Edee 
Madsen and Vanessa Kellerman. We 
played about seven games and scored two 
triumphant goals. Not the most successful 
season, but definitely exciting (and enjoy-

This year's volleyball team was super, 
under the leadership of Miss Hilbink and 
Ms. B. We had two teams: one for the 6th 
and 7th grades, and an eighth grade team. 
By the end of the season, both teams had 
grown closer as a group and showed a 
great deal of improvement in their skills.

Middle School 
Boys' Basketball 

With the help of Coach Eric Lunding, 
the Middle School Boys' Basketball 
Team managed to have a great season 
in 1991. We worked every day after 
school, some of us going so far as to 
practice with the Upper School teams, 
and played about two games every 
week. As always, we had our share of 
wins and our share of losses, but no 
matter what happened, we always had a 
great time! 

1. Both teams were happy to discover that they 
shared a common interest in their penchant for 
imitating John Travolta. 2. A new form of wor- 
ship has been developed, that of the basketball 
net. 3. Soccer, anyone? . . .

School Girls' 


The Middle School Girls' team 
worked hard every day after school for 
an hour with Miss Madsen and Ms. 
Burbules helping us to improve our 
skills. We've had a fun, strong season, 
winning a few and losing a few. We 
have united and become one. We had 
an awesome team this year, and we 
hope next year's will be even better!

The First Grade 

When asked about some of their memora- 
ble experiences in the first grade, these stu- 
dents had a wide variety of responses . . . 
"I like visiting the farm, riding the ponies, 
and feeding the goats." 
"My favorite thing was playing in the 
store, filling up bags with groceries and get- 
ting money from the cash register." 
"The Toy Shop was great! It was filled with 
all our favorite games and we could play 
with them every day." 
"I have always loved dinosaurs, so I liked 
reading and writing about them and mak- 
ing a dinosaur book." 
"Making a Viking ship was fun. First we 
read the Viking Book. Then we had a big 
box which we made into a ship and put a 
sail on it. We could do our reading and 
math in the ship." 

In the first grade, there are future: 
Biologists, gymnasts, violin teachers, po- 
licemen, doctors, ballerinas, hunters, ski 
patrol workers, and teachers. 

The First Graders have lots of different fa- 
vorites. They like: Science, reading, math, 
gym, printing, art, library, and recess; going 
to church, going to the Botanic Garden, 
and train rides; playing with their dogs, lis- 
tening to the radio, computers, playing vio- 
lin, and story time; gymnastics, skiing, 
games, balls, swimming, karate, hockey, 
and ice skating; Chanukah, animals, birth- 
days, toys, books, Christmas, and Chinese

The Second Grade 

Well, the second grade has once 
again had a busy year. What with 
performing in several concerts, for 
Morning Ex., special occasions 
(like the Winter Concert), and 
"Snow Magic," when we sang 
"Winter Wonderland," and taking 
lots of field trips, we've hardly 
had time for our schoolwork! We 
managed to make time though; we 
had fun, too! In social studies, we 
learned about America; we 
worked on reading, and writing 
stories and journals in Language 
Arts; and we learned how to tell 
time and work with bigger 
numbers in math. We had a great 
year — we hope Third Grade will 
be as much fun!

The Third Grade 

The Third Grade has had a busy year. We jumped right 
in, and immediately began studying Colonial America, 
making candles, marbelizing paper, and learning about the 
leather works trade. Then, we started working on our win- 
ter projects — we had a great time writing and performing 
"Winter Rap" for the Lower School Holiday Program, 
"Snow Magic." At the same time, we had to learn the 
"Ya-ya Dance" for the Santa Claus Party — in short, we've 
had a very busy year, but we've had fun!

The Fourth Grade 

There are far too many tales to 
tell about the 4th grade of 1990- 
91. Building cities, correcting 
DOL, writing in our Chandlers', 
and great oral reports are all parts 
of this year's story. Chapters have 
been written about trimming a 
real Christmas tree, making a zig- 
gurat, and closing the day with 
wind-up. Whether digging for arti- 
facts (here or on Michigan Ave- 
nue), reading The Cay and Bridge 
to Terabithia, or writing an infor- 
mation book, the tales of the 
fourth grade are awesome.

The Fifth Grade 

Oh, the memories we will have 
of Fifth Grade and the Lower 
School. We journeyed through 
time and space to join the Maya 
and ancient Greeks. Not only that, 
but along the way, we learned to 
be responsible leaders: we hosted 
Afternoon Ex., we visited our kin- 
dergarten buddies, and we learned 
from each other. Most important, 
though, was the time we spent be- 
ing friends and growing up.

The Sixth Grade 

Sixth Grade is a year of transition, both for students who 
have come to us from Lower School, and for many who 
arrive from other schools. Many new and different exper- 
iences, therefore, await the sixth graders. 


. . . being responsible, not being treated like a baby, and 
going to socials. 

. . . having tons of homework, getting test results back, 
and getting grades. 

. . . having lots of good friends, being in homerooms, and 
loving the teachers. 

. . . having fun in class and sports, and playing soccer and 

. . . having more freedom and being able to go almost any- 
where for lunch. 

. . . being the youngest in a school again and inter-acting 
with the hamster. 

. . . going on an overnight trip and going skiing as a field 

. . . having science contracts, cleaning animal cages, and 
dissecting a heart. 

. . . sculpting in art, learning typing skills in computer, 
and writing. 

. . . having breakfast with the barbarians. 

. . . being able to chew gum and having soft drinks for 

. . . making decisions, visiting the Newbery Library, and 
writing diaries. 

. . . being a Middle Schooler for the first time.

Magic Christmas, and Father Goose. We 
like all kinds of sports: field hockey, soft- 
ball, swimming, skiing, volleyball, bad- 
minton, sailing, football, soccer, and hock- 
ey. If we could spend the whole day doing 
as we like, we would sleep, read, go to the 
Art Institute, play sports, be with friends, 
watch TV, and shop at the army surplus 
store. We are concerned about the envir- 
onment — rain forests, greenhouse effect, 
toxic pollution, the ozone clean layer, wa- 
ter recycling, the whales, and landfills. 
Other issues we think are important are 
world peace, AIDS, drugs, justice, educa- 
tion, racism, and homelessness. For qua- 
lity reading, we recommend Island of the 
Blue Dolphins, Bo Knows Bo, Fallen Angel, 
Caddie Woodlawn, The Thombirds, Gone 
With the Wind, Jacob Have I Loved, The 
Red Badge of Courage, John Christopher 
sci-fi, Stephen King novels, John Bellairs 
mysteries, and "Calvin and Hobbes."

The Eighth Grade 

We have discovered that Eighth Grade is unlike 
any other year in the Middle School. We learned 
more, we grew, we laughed, and we cried. We had 
to bear more responsibility, but most of all we 
really had fun! We learned all about Africa, China, 
and India in Social Studies and English. In 
Science, we learned all about pollution, weather 
and our environment. Some students took an Al- 
gebra class, while others learned informal Geome- 
try and Introductory Algebra. 

There's more to Eighth Grade than academics, 
though. We became closer to our old friends and 
even made friends we hadn't known too well be- 
fore. Our class became very close because of the 
overnight trip we took to Timberlee, where we 
learned to trust our peers, and also learned more 
about ourselves as individuals and as a class.

With only seven people returning from the eighth 
grade, this year's freshman class was made up of new 
people coming in from other schools. It took a long 
time to get to know everyone, but the trip we took to 
Southern Illinois really helped us get acquainted, and 
we had a great time. The Class of 1994 has come to- 
gether well, and we're all looking forward to our next 
three years!

We are the Sophomore Class. We have out- 
grown the infinite immaturities and hardships 
that are always associated with Freshman Year. 
However, we still have some things to learn- 
— but not much. We do our best to set a good 
example for the little newcomers. We enjoy our 
newly acquired authoritarian position and hope 
to touch the lives of many Freshmen in years to 
come. — Angeline Brown and Benjie de la

Okay, we won't lie to you. Junior year has 
not always been fun. What with PSATS, 
ACTS, SATS, AP'S and the like, there have 
been times when we were convinced that we 
were all going to Random Technical Insti- 
tute. However, when we weren't busy being 
stressed over these things, we had a blast. We 
all had a great time on our trip to Covenant 
Harbor, even if Mrs. Foster wouldn't put her 
camera down. Planning Prom drew us even 
closer — yelling and screaming at the people 
you all but live with can really be a bonding 
experience. At any rate, next year, we will be 
. . . SENIORS. And we plan on enjoying it.

After getting off to a rather rough start, 
this year's senior class rose to the occasion 
and proved ourselves to be a class of leaders. 
By stating this, I'm not necessarily suggesting 
that you should model your children after us. 
What I am saying is that . . . well, I don't 
know what I'm saying. Anyhow, "extreme 
diversity" would be the two words to use 
when describing this class. With some 
Americans, Germans, Brazilians, Argenten- 
ians, Belgic people (or whatever they're 
called), people from Waukegan, Arlington 
Heights, Detroit, Waterloo, Nice . . . wait a 
minute! Well, you could say that we're very 
culturally diversified. As we go off to our re- 
spective (or non-respective) colleges, we 
know that we've left our mark which will re- 
main forever in the spirited halls of North 
Shore. I'm not exactly sure what that mark 
is, but I'm sure we'll leave it nonetheless.

Exchange Students 

This year, we were fortunate enough to welcome five exchange student; 
into our North Shore family: Seniors Maximo Chehin from Argentina, Vir 
ginie Mahillon from Belgium, Liliane Neves from Brazil, and Jan Philipl 
Schmidt from Germany, and Junior Fredrik Gunnardo from Sweden. Al 
five of these talented students have been wonderful additions to the school 
and everyone at North Shore will certainly be sorry to see them go. Thei; 
presence has been highly valued by the entire school community and w< 
would all like to wish them the best of luck in their future lives! 

Lifers ... or close to. 

Although none of us have been at North Shore all thirteen years, Danny 
Beider, Denis Healy, Ashley Hemphill, and I have certainly been around for 
a long time. From our first days in lower school to our final days as seniors, 
North Shore has given to us happy, sad, and strenuous times. We would like 
to thank those many teachers who made those times so memorable. We will 
all be happy when graduation comes, but we will regret leaving a wonderful 
part of our lives. — Robert McClung

One night I dreamed I was walking 
along the beach with the Lord. I turned 
and looked back and saw all the footsteps 
I had taken in my life. Most of the time 
there were two sets of footprints in the 
sand — mine and the Lord's. But I noticed 
that sometimes there was only one set of 
footprints, and these were the times when 
the path was steep and rough. So I asked 
Him, "I thought you would always be 
with me, Lord. But at the most difficult 
times in my life, I see only one set of foot- 
prints. Why did you leave me when I 
leeded you most?" The Lord answered 
jently, "I was always with you, my child. 
Where you see just one set of footprints I 
was carrying you." — anonymous

This yearbook has been a real adventure to 
create. From going slightly insane to "borrow- 
ing" assorted items, the 1991 Mirror has a 
crime record of its own. 

I want to thank the staff for their hard work 
and continued devotion. I would also like to 
greatly thank Mr. Almquist for all of his long 
hours of work for us and Amy Peters for her 
scrupulous proof-reading and uncanny sense 
of humor. Thank you all for your hard work. 
It was a blast, but let's not do it again, OK?
